It has been a lovely month. Folk Art Market took place the second weekend, and that's one of the largest events in Santa Fe. Many of you from out of town come in for this, and we loved seeing you! Our lectures by Edric Ong from Malaysia and Barbara Arlen from Santa Fe were enjoyable and edifying. In fact, Barbara's talk had been mentioned by Mary Charlotte on KSFR, a local radio station, that morning so a large crowd turned out at the Collected Works Bookstore.
Our exhibit of South and Southeast Asian textiles by Edric Ong was a huge hit with some exquisite double ikat shawls, silk shawls with gold microembroidery, and many other textiles.
Darshan Shah's Weaving Studio, Chinalai Modern, and Lou Zeldis pieces were also featured during the Folk Art week exhibition. We still have a few pieces from them on display so stop in the store or online if you're interested in them.
Later in the month, I was privileged to attend the national Deaf Women United conference in Berkeley and present my journey to becoming the owner of Santa Fe Weaving Gallery. It was a joy to share the experience with other women who are looking for affirming life changes.
Even though our online presence slows down a bit in the summer as things heat up in town and in the Gallery, know that we appreciate each of you and love talking with you when you call or e-mail us. We're always happy to send you pictures of what we have on the floor and help you select pieces.
We continue to procure and curate modern artisanal style that is comfortable and fabulous to wear. And a big part of our legacy is our international artist community - we're proud to support the beautiful work of the special women and men who have the eye and hand to make beautiful garments.
